Retiring AdSense for Domains in your account

I received this email:

We’re contacting you because you’re using AdSense for Domains to monetize your undeveloped domains. After evaluating the benefits of our partner network, we’ve decided to retire the Hosted domains product within AdSense. Going forward, undeveloped domains will only be served through our existing AdSense for Domains distribution network.
Our records show that 7 of your Hosted domains will be affected by this upcoming change, which will follow the schedule below:

March 21: You’ll no longer be able to create new Hosted domains
April 18: Hosted domains will become inactive and it’ll no longer be possible to earn from them
June 27: Hosted domains will no longer be available in AdSense accounts

To continue monetizing your undeveloped domains, you can migrate your domain portfolio to any domain parking provider. Find out how in our Migration Guide:
all the domains using my adsens are fully developed.
can someone please explain this?
why was my account targeted for this?

I received the same exact email today and I am unsure which domains they are referring to. They mentioned only 3 hosted domains for me though. What do they mean no longer to create new hosted domains...hosted through Google? 

When I clicked on the big blue button provided in the email for their Migration Guide it does not return any information.  ?????

HELP...I was actually in the process of  starting new domains and creating content for them, but now Im not sure if I should 
Same thing here, the email I received today said 3 domains , my undeveloped domains etc. I am also looking for more information
You will no longer be able to use what was formerly called "AdSense for Domains" to park your domains.

Read this i was copied it from some other post by some big contributor
If you are not actively using AdSense for Domains, absolutely nothing will change. You don't need to do anything, either. No need to remove or update anything. No need to migrate domain names, unless you're using those domains for AdSense for Domains (which it sounds like you are not).

If you have content on your site and are now using AdSense for Content, we will continue to serve AFC as we always have. No changes to that at all, including revenue, earnings, targetting... everything will be the same.
